Patricia Weitsman Scholarship

by on 2014-04-01 in Duck- 2 Comments

Patty didn’t want flowers, so instead endow a scholarship at Ohio University.  This is from an email her husband sent out to her supporters:

Please visit Give and note in the online form that the gift is in memory of Dr. Patricia Weitsman and request that funds be designated to The Patricia A. Weitsman Memorial Scholarship, or call (740) 593-0732 to make a gift via phone

She was such a great person, a terrific teacher and influential scholar.  I am glad that that her school will have something lasting to mark her memory and her contributions.

    Steve, thank you so much for these posts. I have been a little in shock from this news, so I greatly appreciate your passing along the information. Pattie and I knew each other as collaborators on my first edited book. She has long been an inspiration to me as a scholar and as a leader in the ISSS section. It is a terrible thing to know that she is gone, and encouraging to have practical ways to help secure her legacy.

    On behalf of my colleagues here at OU, thanks so much for getting this out there, and for your kind remembrances of Patty. She’ll be missed.
